Actress Rachel Weisz has opened up about life as wife to Bond star Daniel Craig.


Rachel revealed to The Mirror that she had to hold out to find The One; "I was often single and feeling alone in my 20s." She continued, "I'd eat pizza at home by myself, rent movies, all the clichés...It was hard sometimes but you hope eventually you'll find the right partner."


The pair tied the knot in a secret ceremony in front of just four guests, including Daniel's 22-year-old daughter Ella, from his own first marriage, and Rachel's son Henry.

It seems the star's secret to finding the perfect match is all about biding time; "When I was younger, I worried about so many things and it was hard for me to feel happy or understand what made me happy. Once you reach your forties, you know where to look."


So what is it like being a real-life Bond girl? It's all about the food!

"I love to cook. Daniel is also very good at it. We always enjoy trying out different kinds of cuisine and having fun with that."

Daniel Craig has spoken for the first time about his 'secret' wedding to long-time friend Rachel Weisz.

THE BEST CELEBRITY PROPOSALS The couple married in a private ceremony in New York after just a few months of dating, although it has since come out that they've actually known each other for years after meeting at university.

THE MOST ICONIC WEDDING DRESSES OF ALL TIME Labelled as a 'whirlwind wedding,' the publicity shy couple have managed to keep rather tight-lipped about their secret nuptials - until now: "We got away with it. We did it privately," said the Bond actor. "And I've got a lot of people to thank for that. But that was the point. We did it for private reasons. Because we didn't want it f*cked up, because that would be sharing a secret. And the whole point is that it was a secret. A secret is a secret in my mind." Craig was equally reluctant to talk about married life - citing the Kardashians as an example of the reality show tell-all culture that he considers his approach the antithesis of. "Look, I'm in love," he told GQ flatly. "I'm very happy. And that is as far as I'm prepared to go. Life is long, life goes wrong, and I don't want to say something now that might be thrown back later… Ultimately, people are saying, 'Give it six months'. Well, guess what? I'm not responding. Life is long and I am hopefully in this for the long run… If you sell it off, it's gone. It's precious. It's worth more than money. You can't buy your privacy back… Look at the Kardashians, they're worth millions. Millions! You see that and you think, 'What, you mean all I have to do is behave like a f*cking idiot on television and then you'll pay me millions?'" The January issue of GQ, featuring the interview with Daniel Craig, is out on Thursday. SR WEDDINGS AND MOVIE STARS
